Did Dwane Casey deserve to be fired?

After being named NBA Coach of the Year by his peers, Dwane Casey is in the unemployment line. The Toronto Raptors decided to dismiss Casey after the best season in franchise history. Casey has been the architect of five of the best Raptors seasons ever. Letting him go is a huge slap in the face. Still, Casey hasn't gotten the team to the conference finals, having been eliminated from playoffs by LeBron James three straight years. A new voice is needed. What do you think? 🏀

Only in the NBA can a coach turn a franchise around, lead them to its best record ever and still get fired. Dwane Casey gave everything he had to the Raptors and because he couldn't get past LeBron James, they are firing him. He shouldn't be blamed for the mental collapse of his players. He can only coach so much before they need to execute. Toronto won't find another man who can lead this team as well as Casey did. He didn't deserve this.

Casey did a great job turning the Raptors around, but the harsh truth is that he wasn't leading this team to a championship. He still has trouble with mid-game and mid-series adjustments, which is why LeBron James was able to have his way against Toronto without any resistance. He didn't do enough to prepare his players for the task of taking down the Cavaliers. If he can't take this team to a title, the franchise needs to get a new voice to help the team get the NBA Finals. Casey won't take long to find another job, but his time with the Raptors is over.
